Right at the top of the Cinema Insomnia page, he says the movies he uses are "for the most part" public domain.

I do like the idea of growing the collection with user contributions, but identifying a particular edition of a film as public domain can be tricky business (waiting for official word before I go spinning my wheels).

A good way to check is to look on Amazon. If you see a version of a film for less than $10 retail odds are very good that its public domain.

I never knew that A Boy and His Dog was public domain. That's one of my favorites cult scifi movies.
